Characters

Koros

Gender: Genderfluid Male
Age: 21
Race: Dragonkin
Class: Blademaster
Element: Fire
Weapon: Chronoblade
Ultimate Skill: Infinity Blade/Zettaflash
Description: One of the legendary heroes who defeated the demon Baetylus and the evil warlord Ozma 2 years ago. He possesses the Firebrand, the mark of Valfa's
chosen, and has gone on many adventures both before and after his quest to stop
the crimson meteor. He is wise and resourceful, but also a bit hot headed. He
used to be extremely perverted two years ago, but has mostly gotten over that. He also enjoys crossdressing in private and occasionally every once and a while, and he's good at it too. He's also a huge fan of the "bunny bingo gang" idol group, believe it or not.

Chili

Gender: Female
Age: Unknown
Race: Unknown
Class: Sorceress
Element: Dark
Weapon: Deathqueen
Ultimate Skill: Bohr Omega
Description: A mysterious woman who was found on the side of the road near the Lich's crypt. Possesses great knowledge about dark magick, or "elder magick" as she calls it, and is very shrewd, if strangely cheerful. Is Koros' closest ally on his quest through the crypt, and may be just as powerful if not more so than Koros himself.

The Lich

Gender: Unknown
Age: At least 3000
Race: Terror
Class: Necromancer
Element: Dark
Weapon: Unknown
Ultimate Skill: Unknown
Description: An immortal, ancient, undead mage who was said to grant people immortality during ancient times on request. Refusing to die, the mage used their largely unfinished immortality spell on themselves, turning them into the undead monstrosity you know them as today. They seek to consume all the world's people, and therefore, their knowledge, under their control in one united hive mind. Koros must stop them!

Fire Scourge

Gender: Male?
Age: Unknown
Race: Terror
Class: Pyromancer
Element: Fire
Weapon: Flame Whips
Ultimate Skill: Firestorm
Description: A massive, overgrown ghost who loves spicy food. Some say he used to be a famous chef when he was alive, others say that he was a serial killer famous for baking people alive, and some say he was both. Either way, he's a very dangerous foe, and now owns his own restaurant for the undead where the main course is YOU!

Ice Scourge

Gender: Unknown
Age: Unknown
Race: Terror
Class: Cyromancer
Element: Water
Weapon: Icy Spike
Ultimate Skill: Icestorm
Description: The smartest and fastest of the Lich's generals who knows more about Chili than he lets on. He repeats over and over that Chili is some sort of "traitor." What could that mean?

Thunder Scourge

Gender: None
Age: Many
Race: Amalgamite
Class: Chaos Warden
Element: Thunder
Weapon: Chaos Swarm
Ultimate Skill: Thunderstorm
Description: A mindless mass of many suffering minds and souls. It only has one instinct: destroy, but regardless of it's non-existent intelligence it is still one of the Lich's most powerful minions and is not to the trifled with. It constantly seeks it's own demise due to the constant pain it feels. Will you be the one to finally end it's suffering?

Anna

Gender: Female
Age: It's a secret!
Race: Human?
Class: Merchant
Element: Light
Weapon: Golden Bow
Ultimate Skill: Gilded Thorn
Description: A suave merchant girl who always seem to be at the right place at the right time, always ready to sell whatever goods she has in stock. She always seems to be in multiple places at once, with her many "sisters" working independently in every town and dungeon entrance. Who exactly is this mysterious woman? Is she is goddess? A multi-dimensional hive mind? A forgotten first dragon? We may never know.

Barbello

Gender: Ascended
Age: Infinite, (Zutara years) 19 (celestial years)
Race: Celestial
Class: Creator
Element: Celestial
Weapon: True Solaris
Ultimate Skill: True Infinity Overdrive
Description: The true creator of Zutara and progenitor of all life in the Zutara Multiverse. She was the one who spawned the seed that would form the World Tree, and her children are the gods Zophia and Elzakalas, one of pure light, the other of pure darkness. She appears often in the background of these various tales to inform of viewer (or player) of various things and important meta information. She also serves as the narrator of the events taking place, but rarely if ever interacts with her creations and if she does she's in disguise, at least to her creations, as they cannot grasp even her mere existence.

???

Description: A mysterious and creepy girl that looks a bit like Koros. Who is this woman? How is she connected to Koros? Does she even exist? Maybe, maybe not...


The original version of Crypt Challenge DX released in October 2019, with this remastered version having been released on April 28th, 2021. I hope you enjoy playing Crypt Challenge EX!

Major bugs fixed!

Hello everyone. Recently, two major bugs had came to my attention that were plaguing this game, both being completely game-breaking. One was a glitch that blocked off access to the boss of the fleshy crypt, and the other one stuck you in a wall when attempting to enter the evil hallway. However, I am pleased to announce that both glitches have been fixed, so now Crypt Challenge EX should be completely bug free. Enjoy!

1. First of all - there is no file "sandstorm" in non-existing folder img/parallaxes (I created some random image to get along with game), which umakes it impossible to play game
2. No event starts with that Chili girl, who lies outside cavern, but when you enter crypt, she is suddenly talking but not in your party.

Please fix those problems. That's 2 mins in game with ugly bugs.
Fixed in the newest update.
I feel a little dumb...

in the flesh room i continue going around, because i can't let all of the wall go down


Anyway

tried to go directly to the lich, but i end OUT of the staircase, stuck. So i cannot move. Is it intended? Do I have to wait the 60 seconds?
To progress past the evil hallway, you must interact with every corpse on the stairway. Some of them are just regular corpses, while others are Omega Zombies in disguise. After defeating all 6 omega zombies, you will be automaticly brought to the "final rest" right before the final battle with the Lich. This is the case no matter if you go straight to the lich or go later after certain objectives have been completed.

ehm ... no.
I simply can’t Walk. The sprite stands OUTSIDE the ladder so i cannot move. I am stuck in a blank spot in the middle right of the screen


And...
can you give a hint for the corpse walls? No matter the order i just continue having 2 wall on!
I don't know what your talking about the "corpse walls," but my guess is your talking about the flesh/thunder room. When you interact with one of the switches/orbs, it will tell you if the wall disappeared or re-appeared. If it says the wall re-appeared, press the switch again to make that particular wall disappear. There are three total walls and three switches. I'll check it out to find any possible glitches, but this room worked perfectly fine in the MV version which this version is heavily based on, so there shouldn't really be that issue.

That's the room. The problem is that all the switches move the same pillar.
Anyway the first stated issue is game blocking because THE PG IS STUCK IN THE WRONG SIDE OF THE SCREEN!!! I can not walk, simply.
I checked the game and fixed the glitches you described. You should now be able to fully play through the game without issues!
